A Staged Reading by Teatro Vivo
Mariachi Girl is a bilingual Spanish/English musical for children and family audiences. Young Carmencita dreams of being in her father’s Mariachi band, but he insists that mariachi groups can only include men. When Carmencita reads a book about a famous female mariachi it expands her world and her notion of what is possible. Full of vibrant original mariachi music, this play explores how one girl can challenge her identity in a modern society while embracing her rich heritage.
The mission of Teatro Vivo (TV) is to communicate the Latino cultural heritage experience through theatrical performance.
